  • A nice end for the freedom trail. Interesting historic monument in a nice green. Was especially nice on Halloween with everyone dressed up, street performing and a great community feel
  • A cool monument and park. The monument is free to climb and offers great views. It is not dissimilar to the Washington monument. It is a great end to the freedom trail
  • As a significant part of our Nation's history, this park is a stop that any history buff should make. As a national park, it's well kept and the rangers are very helpful and informative. It's a long way up to the top of the monument, but the view is spectacular!
  • This is the place where it all began! The 'Freedom Trail' starts from here. This is a well preserved and maintained historical landmark. One can climb (about 200 steps or so) to top and the view from there is very good. Also I enjoy sitting on lawn and watch the kids play.
  • An important part of the US history. It's also a great place to see if you're a history buff like I am, or if you want some quality family time. Climbing to the top of the bunker is not recommended if you're lazy or not in prime health.
